LORD ROSEBERY AND THE BUDGET Lord Rosebery has written a letter to the Press, in which he says that the Budget is a social and political revolution of the first magnitude. Without concerning himself as to the merits of the revolution, Lord Rose- bery says: The feature of the case which impresses me most is this. It will be effected, if it is effected, without the participation of the country, without the country, indeed, having the least pretence of a voice in the matter. It will be carried out over the heads of the people by a majority in the House of Commons, without the faintest desire or attempt to ascertain "the views of the people on the vast changes projected. British citizens will have no more control over them than if they were Tartars or Lapps." The letter goes on-: "So that boasted free- dom of our Constitution has really come to this, that the most sweeping changes may be carried out by a Ministry of great numerical backing in the House of Commons without the nation having, or ever having had, or hoping to have, a voice in the matter before it is decided." "Surely the country must begin to see," says Lord Rosebery, that there are vast flaws in the Constitution, and that the abso- lute rule of a party in power differs very little from the absolute rule of an individual, which is what we used to call despotism?"
